The only word I can think of to adequately describe the quality of the brisket here is “extraordinary”. Just back and I can still taste the meat and smoke. BBQ ecstasy.
I arrived just before 6 pm and there were maybe 20 people in line ahead of me, many who ended up carrying bags of food away. That was fortunate because while seating is somewhat limited, I had no trouble finding a spot.
Brisket is served in sandwiches but also by the pound, chopped or sliced. I ordered a half-pound slice, and some “spicy coleslaw”. The brisket cut was maybe 9” long, 5” wide, and a good 3/4” thick.
Luscious, fall-apart tender, intensely flavorful, juicy, perfect smoke, wonderful fat…just splendid. Every single bite. It was so soft, moist and tender that I could hardly pick it up. I did shake on some salt, a personal preference, but that’s all. They offer a number of BBQ sauces here (and hot sauces too), but in no way should this superb brisket be bastardized by any kind of sauce.
Hands down the best low-and-slow brisket I’ve ever had. Oh yes, and the slaw was fresh and tasty. They also offer large, help-yourself jars of pickles at the condiments bar. I enjoyed the pickled onions.
